Where Does ‘Ditto’ Come From?
By arika okrent | dec 28, 2016.
It’s a crucial line in the 1990 movie Ghost , a favorite phrase of Rush Limbaugh’s dittoheads , and the reigning copy machine of the mid-20th century, but what does ditto really mean, and where did it come from?
“Ditto” as a response meant as “same here” or “what you said” has a modern, almost slangy feel to it, so many people assume that it was taken from the copy machine use. The reading is that a ditto machine makes copies, so saying ditto creates a “copy” of something that was just said. But the “what you said” use is centuries older than the machine.
It comes from Italian ditto , a dialect variation on detto , meaning “said," the past participle of dice , “to say.” It was used in Italian as in il ditto libro , “the aforesaid book.” In English, it came to be used in the 17th century to avoid having to repeat words and phrases in accounting and commercial language. Instead of repeating something like January 29 or Newcastle upon Tyne in a list, one could just put ditto in after the first occurrence.
Ditto gradually drifted from a noun meaning “the aforesaid” or “the same” (as in a 1759 cookbook: “Parsley roots, and leaves of ditto”) to an adverb meaning “I agree with what you just said.”
The force of ditto goes beyond mere agreement though. If the Patrick Swayze character in Ghost said “I love you” and Demi Moore said “Agreed” or “I concur,” it would sound like she was agreeing only with the proposition he expressed: that he loved her. Kind of rude. What she means is not just “I agree,” but “I hereby say the same.” Ditto still carries the concept of actual saying with it. It performs an act of saying by merely pointing back to already said words.

--- After Molly says she loves him.
Sam Wheat is the main character of the 1990 film Ghost .
- 1 Background
- 3 Powers and abilities
Background [ ]
Patrick Swayze, who plays Sam, is a 20-something office-worker in New York city, living with his long-term girlfriend, Molly Jenson. Sam is one day murdered by Willy Lopez , and seeks the help of a reluctant medium, Oda Mae Brown , to protect Molly when Willy plans to strike again.
Sam Wheat, a banker, and Molly Jensen (Demi Moore), a talented potter, are a loving couple who move into a New York City apartment. At work, Sam discovers a major discrepancy in a couple of bank accounts (too much money) and confides in his good friend and colleague Carl Bruner. Carl offers to investigate the matter, but Sam decides to investigate himself.
Sam dies in Molly's arms
Later that night, Sam and Molly are attacked by armed thug Willie Lopez and Sam is killed by a gunshot during a struggle with Willie. Sam's ghost arises from his dead body, which lies next to the distraught Molly. He gradually realizes that he is a ghost whose presence cannot be seen or heard.
One day, Sam is alone at the apartment (testing his ability to walk through doors) when Willie comes in, looking for something. Sam is unable to stop the killer but spooks Molly's cat, Floyd, causing Willie to get scratched and flee. Sam follows the killer to his place in Brooklyn and hears that he will return to Molly's house. He also meets Oda Mae Brown, a local con artist posing as a medium and realizes she can hear him (not see him), although Oda Mae had been faking her abilities until then. He persuades Oda Mae to tell Molly that she is in danger, but Molly is disbelieving and Carl later convinces Molly that Oda Mae is a fraud preying on her grief. Molly talks to the police about her concerns but they confirm that Oda Mae is a known confidence trickster with a lengthy record whereas Willie Lopez has none.
Sam discovers that Carl was involved in a money laundering scheme at the bank and that the attack was an attempt by Carl to acquire Sam's security codes, so he could transfer the money from the many accounts to one at another bank. He learns how to move solid objects by willpower from an aggressive New York City Subway Ghost ( Vincent Schiavelli ) he meets in the subway. He persuades Oda Mae to thwart Carl's money laundering scheme. Following his instructions, Oda Mae impersonates the owner of Carl's fake bank account, closes the account, and reluctantly gives its $4 million contents to a homeless shelter.
Carl, due to transfer the money to a correspondent bank overseas, becomes desperate when he finds the account closed and empty. Sam taunts him in the deserted office by moving objects and making accusations appear on his computer screen, typing MURDERER, then his name (SAM), making it repeat. Carl visits Molly and declares to Sam that he will kill Molly unless the money is returned that evening. He and Willie then go to Oda Mae's apartment to find her. Sam manages to get there first and warns Oda Mae and her two sisters, who quickly escape and take refuge in a neighbor's apartment. Sam uses his powers to separate and distract Carl and Willie, who are ransacking Oda Mae's apartment in search of the money. Horrified by the experience, Willie flees and is killed in a traffic accident. Willie's ghost arises, sees his body, and is told by Sam that he's dead. A group of howling demons emerge from shadows of ordinary things and pull a screaming Willie into the shadows, while Sam watches in horror. It is implied they take him to Hell.
Afterwards, Sam and Oda Mae return to Molly's apartment to warn her about Carl, but she refuses to let her in and breaks down in grief. Sam finally convinces her that Oda Mae is genuine and he is truly present as a ghost by having her push a penny underneath the front door and Sam levitating it in front of Molly. Astonished, Molly lets Ode Mae inside and while waiting for the police, Sam uses Oda Mae's body to share a final dance with Molly.
Carl arrives, prepared to murder Molly and Oda Mae, but they flee. Sam is left momentarily weakened, as possession wipes a ghost out. In the storage room, Carl manages to get a hold of Oda Mae and threatens to kill her, but Molly comes to her aid and holds Carl off long enough for Oda Mae to escape his grasp. Carl grabs Molly and hold her at gunpoint for the money but is unsuccessful and as Sam recovers he is able to disarm Carl and attack him. As Carl attempts to flee through a plate glass window, he flings a scaffolding hook in Sam's direction which swings back and partially shatters the glass in the upper part of the window; the window slides down and kills Carl as he climbs out. Carl becomes a ghost himself much to his astonishment and to Sam's grief. Sam then watches in silence as the shadowy demons arrive and drag a screaming Carl away into the darkness.
Sam illuminates from the heavenly light, being seen by Molly since his death and Oda for the first time
As Sam goes to Oda Mae and Molly and asks if they are all right, Molly suddenly realizes that she can hear him. A heavenly light fills the room and Sam becomes fully visible to both Molly and Oda Mae. Sam looks behind him and sees hundreds of people, presumably angels, in a portal to Heaven. His task is completed and he can move on. Sam says an emotional farewell to Molly, thanks Oda Mae for her help, and departs to the afterlife.
Powers and abilities [ ]
As a human, Sam possessed no paranormal powers. After his death and his transition into a ghost, he gained the ability to walk through solid objects (walls, people, etc.) and to be unseen by people. At first he couldn't move objects because of his intangibility, but learned from a fellow ghost on the subway how to move solid objects. He later tossed objects at Willy to scare him and also wrote BOO on the bathroom mirror
- There is a running gag in the film of whenever Molly tells Sam she loves him, he replies back "ditto", but a the end of the film when Molly finally sees Sam when the heavenly light shines bright, he finally says he loves her which she replies back "ditto", before leaving onwards to Heaven.
- Bruce Willis was originally offered the role of Sam, but he turned it down and regretted not taking it after seeing how much a success the movie was. Tom Cruise was considered for the role.

- 2 Subway Ghost

What is the origin of the word ditto?
According to Mental Floss , the word ditto which is famously used in the movie Ghost starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore comes from the Italian ditto, which is a Tuscan dialect variation on the Italian detto, which means “said.” This is the past participle of dice, an Italian verb meaning to say. This was used in Italian as in il ditto libro, which means the aforesaid book. This variant of detto comes from the Latin dīcere, Latin dictus, and Latin dīcō. This began to be used in 17c in the English language as a placeholder instead of having to repeat words and phrases in accounting and commercial language.
People would put ditto in a list after the first occurrence so they did not waste time. Gradually over time this word shifted from a noun that means the same or the aforesaid to an adverb that means “I agree with what was just said.” This also spurred the term ditto marks, which is when one uses a pair of small marks, either two apostrophes, commas, or quotation marks, in a list to show that it is the same as the item preceding above or earlier action. Early evidence of ditto marks are seen on a cuneiform tablet of the Neo-Assyrian period. The term ditto is of Indo-European roots, likely deik . The first recorded use of ditto was in 1625, and it became popular in the 20th century.

Person 1: Ditto! See you there!
Person 1: Instead of writing the tables of names over and over again in the books of account, you can just use ditto marks if they are the same! Use vertical lines if it’s the same as above, and horizontal lines if it’s the same as beside.
Person 2: Great, thanks!
Person 1: I think I’d like the prime American pork. Looks like the restaurant has barrels of it! And I’ll have that with the mashed potatoes and broccoli.

Native Detroiter who wrote 'Ghost' reminisces about film as it turns 30
Detroit native Bruce Joel Rubin remembered the day his agent called to say he would no longer represent him because nobody wanted to make movies about ghosts.
Rubin was devastated.
This was the same day in 1984 he and Blanche, his wife of 51 years, sold their Illinois home to move to Hollywood with their two sons.
“I thought everything was over, but (Blanche) said it was the best thing that ever happened to us. How she knew that I don’t know, but it did turn out to be the best thing,” said Rubin, 77, who graduated from Mumford High School in 1960 and attended Wayne State University. He now lives in Hudson Valley, New York.
Within a week of moving, they found a house, Rubin had a new agent and work as a writer, but it took another five years to get his supernatural romantic thriller “Ghost” made.
As the movie marks its 30th anniversary on Monday (COVID-19 has postponed a special showing of “Ghost” in movie theaters but it is streaming on various sites), Rubin reminisced about how he pitched it numerous times and fought to get the late Patrick Swayze cast in the lead role — something director Jerry Zucker opposed.
“I’d seen Patrick on a Barbara Walters interview, where he was talking about his dad and started crying,” recalled Rubin. “That really moved me. He was so authentic and real. I felt he needed to read for our film.”
Behind Zucker’s back, Rubin called Swayze’s agent, asking Swayze to read — something Zucker learned years later.
“(Swayze) nailed it,” said Rubin. “When he read the last line — ‘The love inside, you take it with you’ — everyone in the room started crying (even Zucker) and he got the part.”
Many of Hollywood’s leading men were considered for “Ghost,” including Tom Cruise and Harrison Ford.
“(Ford) didn’t get the movie. He couldn’t understand why he’d want to play a dead man,” said Rubin. “If Patrick didn’t say yes, the movie would’ve fallen apart.”
Rubin always wanted to tell a ghost story from the ghost’s perspective.
“One day, I was watching a production of ‘Hamlet,’ which begins with the ghost of Hamlet’s father saying, ‘Revenge my death,’” he recalled. “I thought, ‘Wow, let’s transpose that into the 20th century; it’d be an interesting story.’ And the idea hit me.”
In “Ghost,” banker Sam Wheat (Swayze) and girlfriend Molly Jensen (Demi Moore) live in Manhattan. Though he loves her deeply, Sam would only say “ditto” in response to Molly’s “I love you.”
At work, Sam informs co-worker Carl Bruner (Tony Goldwyn, who’s married to “Ghost” production designer Jane Musky) about unusually high balances in several bank accounts. That night, Willie Lopez (the late Rick Aviles) attacks Sam and Molly. A gun fires and Sam chases Willie off. Turning around, Sam sees Molly holding his dead body, realizing he was killed. Now a ghost, Sam’s invisible to the mortal world. As weeks pass, Sam remains by a distraught Molly, unseen and unheard.
He learns Carl was laundering money and sent Willie to steal the bank accounts’ passwords from Sam, not kill him. To protect Molly, Sam recruits psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg in her Oscar-winning role). Only Oda Mae can perceive Sam. In the end, Sam thwarts Carl and shares a final kiss with Molly, who now sees him, before ascending to heavenHeaven.
“(‘Ghost’) taps into something very primal with people,” said Rubin. “It’s that urge to have one last moment with someone you love; it satisfies that fantasy… (Sam returned) from the other side just to say ‘I love you’ — something he couldn’t say to Molly when he was alive — and that’s very powerful.”
“It’s just one of those beloved films and I’m proud to have been a part of it,” Goldwyn said. “I remember feeling at the time that we made it… this movie has everything: It’s a love story, it’s a thriller, it’s a comedy, it’s a ghost story. Above all of it is the theme that love transcends death. I think that’s so emotionally resonant, that people want to keep going back and back to re-experience that.”
The No. 1 movie of 1990
When “Ghost” debuted July 13, 1990, nobody had any idea it would become the No. 1 movie of 1990, grossing more than $505 million worldwide at the box office.
“I was as surprised as anybody else,” said Rubin. “It was pretty amazing.”
During a “Ghost” sneak-peak in Detroit, Rubin said he didn’t dare look around the theater in case there were vacant seats.
“I just couldn’t bear the thought nobody wanted to see my movie,” he said. “All of the sudden, I started seeing people sitting in the rows ahead of me, and I was really surprised. Then I turned around and the entire theater was completely full... I had no idea where these people came from and how they knew about the movie — it was just a preview! I saw people sitting in the aisles! I’ve never seen that before… When (‘Ghost’) came on, they loved it. They just loved it. I was excited.”
Zucker called Rubin from Los Angeles, stating previews had sold out nationwide — the first indication “Ghost” would be big.
“On opening night, the cast and crew went around in a bus to different theaters in L.A. At one theater, there was a line around the block — I couldn’t believe that. Turned out, it was not only the line for the next showing, but for the showing after that!” said Rubin. “We sold out every single theater. And we continued to sell out every single theater throughout the rest of the summer. We opened in July; we were still playing in December.”
Rubin won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Winning the Oscar — a lifetime dream — was a mythic moment. “It was one of the most remarkable experiences of my life,” said Rubin. “I would say it was the most perfect film experience I’ve ever had.”
The legacy of ‘Ghost’
Rubin’s astounded “Ghost” has endured so long.
“(Movies) come and go with the seasons. For ‘Ghost’ to still be part of the culture 30 years later is unexpected and very special,” he said. “I don’t know why people embrace it so deeply. (Parents) tell their children to see it, who tell their children to see it. It talks about something very meaningful to the human psyche. This idea that death isn’t an ending — I think that’s very important for a movie to address or affirm. And then there’s this incredibly romantic idea that you’re able to have one last moment with someone you love. Those are the key elements to why the film keeps playing — it touches the human psyche in a very deep way.”
“Ghost” has been a wonderful gift, Rubin said.
“For a kid from Detroit to have any access at all to something on an international scale is very special,” he said. “There’s no direct line, there’s no way to get your material on the big screen. I hoped and prayed since I was a little kid I’d make movies, but there was no way to know how that would ever happen. Yet through all these circuitous routes one takes in life, those doors finally opened for me late in life.”
Rubin said his Detroit roots prepared him for his future.
“I was grounded in ways that I never would’ve been had I grown up in California or elsewhere,” said Rubin. “Something about Detroit gives you a sense of the goodness of human life. I feel very good that I came from there, that I learned a lot, and that I was able to transfer what I learned… to the films I made.”

I enjoyed that it was a true representation of "girl world" and how bitchy girls can be towards each other, especially behind each others' backs. I also hated that in the end it was a happy ending where they all got on because it's unrealistic. I also dislike all the Africa references, like when the girls act like lions fighting, as it is irrelevant and quite frankly just annoying. I liked the way the school was and the cliques as this is very realistic, but it's also exagerrated in such a way which allows people in similar cliques to sort of laugh at themselves. Hope this helped xo

What's the Meaning of NewJeans 'Ditto' MV? Concept, Interpretation Revealed
NewJeans' new song, "Ditto," continues to sit atop various music charts! Amid this achievement, its two-part music videos are also gaining attention for their concept and storyline.
What is it really all about?
NewJeans Unveils Pre-Released Track 'Ditto' – Here's The Song's Concept
On December 19, NewJeans released its new single, "Ditto," a b-sidetrack from the their first winter album, "OMG."
Right after its release, "Ditto" immediately topped local and international music charts, ranking No. 1 in Korea's major music sites such as MelOn, Genie, Bugs and it also entered Flo. The song also topped the iTunes Top Songs chart in seven countries/regions around the world, including the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Aside from the visuals and idol skills of the quintet, the reason it's gaining attention from music listeners is due to the track's concept.
In particular, "Ditto" is a reinterpretation of the Baltimore club dance music genre in the United States. Compared to what NewJeans showed from their hit debut songs, "Attention" and "Hype Boy," released last summer, "Ditto" is more like a dance to shake off something you had to do than holding onto sadness and crying.
It also incorporated the dim and romantic meeting between soft Y2K (millennial popular from the late 1900s to the early 2000s) and the Z generation emotions worked in the winter following summer.
NewJeans Reveals 2 Music Videos For 'Ditto' – Interpretation
Aside from the song itself, what attracted the attention of fanns the most is the unique music videos released by NewJeans.
Instead of just one, the team unveiled two-part MVs (Side A and Side B), making viewers get more immersed in the narrative and directing elements.
On December 20, Newsis revealed the meaning and interpretation of the MVs, which were created in collaboration with CEO Min Hee Jin, a former creative director with Director Shin Woo Suk.
According to the article, the music videos' atmosphere was adapted from Japanese Director Iwai Shunji's classic films, including "Love Letter" (1995), "Hana and Alice" (2004)m and "All About Lily Chou-Chou" (2001).
On top of that, some of the scenes also remind viewers of the classic Korean academy horror, "Girls' High School Story."
Delving deeper into the MV's symbolisms, a deer that appeared on both side A and side B "that looks at Heesoo with a sad emotion" means fundamental nostalgia or "self-portrait."
Ban Heesoo, a character played by rising actress Park Ji Hoo represents Bunnies, the fandom of NewJeans. There are speculations that "Ban Heesoo" is actually a wordplay of the fandom's name.
In the MV, Heesoo always captures the image and actions of the five members using a camcorder. The mysterious character is a metaphor that fandom and stars can go beyond simply cheering for each other and sometimes suffer loss, "Walk in this maze."
A friend of the opposite sex, the male lead, was then played by actor Choi Hyun Wook from the drama "Weak Hero Class 1." He appears to be the romantic interest of Ban Heesoo, depicting an obstacle to a fan sentiment.
Meanwhile, Minji calling Heesoo in the music video couldn't be ignored as well, it simply creates a connection between a star and a fan.
The media outlet added:
"However, as the music video proves, the two are not interdependent. It is an independent relationship that recognizes that we can lose each other. That's why we care more about each other and value each other. ('Ra-ta-ta-ta That's why we can walk through the maze of our lives with a ringing heart')."
